witnessed one or both of these collisions. george, can you hear us? >> i can hear you. >> what did you see? >> i was in a car driving up just gotten out of the battery tunnel driving north on west street when enormous explosion happened. and i think it was larger than a construction explosion. i looked out the window and what appeared to be an enormous tire smashed into the ground and i believe it hit the car to the right of me. it was just so scary. and there was also a ton of debris fall. i jumped out of the car and i ran south away from the building because i thought there would be further explosions. >> and have you seen anyone injured on the ground? >> a man next to me was hit by a piece of debris on his arm, and they said that someone had been badly hurt in a car ahead of me. i'm not certain if it was the car next to me. i can't verify that. all i can say is a lot of debris was falling. it was very confusing because everybody, i think, immediately assumed that a bomb had exploded and that sort of -- you know, had people thinking that furthe. bombs may explode. there was sort of a rus
started before 8:00 this morning and according to what police are telling us, they brought a person, this hostage, from somewhere else to the bank. what does all this tell you? >> well, chris, first of all, my background is as an fbi agent and haostage negotiator and i have been involved in bank hostage situations in the past. when they bring someone to the bank it suggests probably one of two things. number one, they had kidnapped someone, the robbers, whoever they are, had kidnapped someone and were trying to force him or her to get money out of the bank's atm. we call those rapid robberies or quick robberies sometimes. the second is that it may be someone who either works for the bank or who is known at the bank and they used that person to get into the bank at 8:00, realized the bank doesn't open until 9:00. but if they get in at 8:00, that would really give the robbers, unfortunately, inside the bank before customers would start to come. as you know, chris, banks also have television, tv sets and, of course, msnbc is aware of that and i think will be very guarded in anything we
here, thomas, with the individual. again, they're using the word individual at this moment in the briefing we're just listening to. they were not using the word suspect. that just getting into us within the last five to seven minutes for you. >> what we understand, this is right by the university of miami. a popular bank branch for the students. >> very popular. just to show you how close it is. i'll show you this map right here. this is the bank according to google maps. this is the university of miami right here. 150 yards separate them. to get a sense of how crowded this area is. you have hear a terrace inn and cereal bowl another place and very residential. so, very much an area that is very well populated and used. at the moment, very difficult. you can see from this tower cam how busy, again, the traffic is as they have cordoned off that area. >> richard, stay with me, we're doing great stuff. we will bring in clint, an msnbc analyst and also a chief hostage negotiator with the fbi. he joins us now by the telephone now. clint, what do you think of the situation right
of dollars and shazad turned around and used that cash to pay for the vex, for the materials used in that failed bombing attempt and that the money, as investigators have discovered, comes from the pakistan taliban. but nowhere to investigates believe that mohamed unis knew where this money was coming from or what it was going to be used for. if convicted, this charge carries a five year prison term. he did not know about the bomb plot, but he did meet with shazad and provided that money transfer. >> has he been providing money to other people? >> yes. there's at least one other man, a new jersey man who came that same month and was provided thousands of dollars. it is unclear the nature of where that money originated from and the investigation certainly continues into this individual. as you know, there were people in boston and in main and in south jersey that the fbi conducted searches and raids and several people were picked up on immigration charges, but this is the first case where there are clarnlgs related to the money transfer. >> jonathan, thank you. >> thank you. >>> we

than get back? >> no. at this point, we did have one officer that pushed us back. i said well, how far do we need to go? she said back to georgia avenue. i asked what about on the other side of the building. she indicated this is a fluid situation from her perspective, at least, and they're taking action in terms of keeping the public away as they deem it's necessary. >> sure, that's a tall -- i mean, that's a towel building. a lot of vantage points fros f inside that building. >> we were trying to do a count. it looks like it's about a 12 to 14-story building at least. it's a massive, as we said, complex there. this is their worldwide headquarters in downtown silver spring. we hadn't seen cars, then i saw two or three. it's kind of tough to see from this vantage point, but i did see some movement turning on to this main avenue there, georgia avenue, which we've seen is shut down. >> people need to know don't go anywhere near this area at this point. it's at the epicenter of silver spring, the cross roads there. the beltway is not far up the street there. the district line is a couple
information for us. bob? >> reporter: katie, i was just thinking as you commented there about the various planes involved. the one that we know of so far, because it's confirmed by american airlines, is that that flight 11 which had been scheduled from boston's logan airport to los angeles,that flight 11 was hijacked this morning. and it is presumed that that may thatbeen one of the planes went into one of the towers of the world trade center. there were at least two more planes involved in this because the other tower was hit. and then the pentagon was also there were eyewitness accounts th it was a plane that went into the pentagon. but so far we don't know the sources of those planes, whether they were commercial planes that had been hijacked, whether they were private planes, whether they had been hijacked at all. and i would point out the report from somerset county, pennsylvania, is so far just local authorities commenting. the faa has not confirmed that crash. so we're waiting to hear more, and i'm hearing just now -- >> bob -- confirming, so this adds to those earlier rumors, tha

the president and his allies are hitting back. >> they drove us into the ditch. if we give the keys back to the people who did this it would be like giving back the keys to the person who did this. we will explain what we are watching here. what are we seeing here? >> right now we are watching tropical storm hermine p. all the way to mexico. especially in south texas and parts of the loan star state. look at the radar right now. already starting to see the rain bands moving towards the coast. watching out for flash flooding. look at the doppler radar estimates. so, certainly we will find some problems in the loan star state over the next couple of days. quiet conditions for today. dealing with a few showers and storms in florida and in the pacific northwest. >> thanks so much. we will talk again soon. pakistan rocked by a suicide bombing. at least 17 people killed and more than 40 others wounded. now the taliban claiming responsibility for this and says it is intentionally targeting the police. >> the local police are encouraged to tell local villagers to set up militias to try to keep t

in his demands on the internet that humans are not necessary. we've got with us, derek bartlett, a former s.w.a.t. team member and sniper team member. hopefully the information is correct. everyone is out of the building. this is not a hostage situation. if that is the case, you have an individual, he's armed, he may have explosives. how the s.w.a.t. team who's in contact with him hopefully get him out of there safely and end this? >> well, if things are where they are right now, hopefully you contain him, you contact him, you talk to him. and you give him a chance to air whatever grievance he has and hopefully give up peacefully without injuring anyone in the building or s.w.a.t. officers or himself. obviously the goal is to get everyone out alive. >> absolutely. and if all of the individuals in that building are out, he's in there alone, he's got the microphone, if you will, in that he's in contact with authorities. and at this point, do they simply listen? and the urgency of getting innocent people out of there, it doesn't seem to be the case. . >> we're going to try to talk to him and
department has put u.s. embassies around the world on alert, ordered them to review their security before any violence against america erupts. and the fbi reportedly is collecting information about the plan to burn the koran. officials may have no power to stop it, given jones' constitutional right to free expression. president obama lambasted jones' plans with a reminder about america's fundamental beliefs. >> i just hope he understands that what he's proposing to do is completely contrary to our values as americans. >> and politicians from both ends of the spectrum slam the plan. sarah palin called it an unnecessary provocation. senator john mccain begged jones not to do it via twitter. but a group known as the agenda project has released a video accusing them of stirring out fervor with their own fight against a planned mosque near ground zero. and that fervor may be growing. the fbi is investigating vandalism at a phoenix mosque. blamed a fire in tennessee on an arsonist. hartford, connecticut was planning to allow local imams to give a muslim prayer at the start of the council meetings,
'donnell show." they may say give us something to believe in. >> that seems to be the disconnect here. you talk to democrats in washington privately they say a bunch of people sent us to washington to change the place, and maybe they don't see the change yet. they haven't seen these effects. so you see these examples all the time. but look at what the president is doing today. he's in madison. a little bit of a college town, so i've heard. >> that's the word on the street. >> joe biden is at penn state. they're having four or five surrogates all trying to do this. they are finally starting to engage african-americans. the third part of this coalition of surge voters the the youth. >> young people. >> now the question, i believe, posed in the first read as well, will the white house blame the base? if the midterms are a bust? >> no, i think each side has a built-in excuse. the base will say, you didn't give us anything to believe in. the white house will say, you guys are holding us to a ridiculous standard. and this bickering back and forth. the problem is, it's the economy. at the end of the d
negotiator for the fbi. this is brand-new video just coming in to us now, clint, from their coral gables in florida. give us your sense of the situation. our nbc station there in miami was reported it starred last night with a domestic dispute. >> not too surprising, contessa, a situation like this gets very confused. there were multiple reports today, as you suggest, a domestic dispute last night. there was also reports that there was a home invasion, a hostage taking that a bank teller was forced to wear an alleged explosive device on his body, and had entered the bank. there were also reports of multiple bank robbers so this is flying left and right, but, supposedly, the fbi, earlier this morning, indicated to their knowledge that one person had entered the bank wearing a bomb about 11:30 or a half an hour ago. we do know that a shirtless man had exited the bank, was in handcuffs and was in police custody and that the bomb squad was on the scene supposedly evaluating whether there was a device inside the bank, if that device was actually a bomb, and they are spriting separate the bad

reports are that the first suspect was using an automatic weapon. >> yeah, that initial report, thomas, now, again, we don't have that from law enforcement. so t could be anywhere from what you and i know to be a semiautomatic pistol all the way up to something like an automatic rifle, for example, an ak-47. we just don't know right now. what we do know is that this first individual, evidentally was making some kind of statement first by firing these rounds and, unfortunately, we said he fired them in the area, didn't shoot at anyone in particular but he turned the weapon on himself and killed himself. this second person he was allegedly seen with was that a friend or just another student or could that be another gunman? well, on that campus they just can't take the chance. right now you have this major search going on and you've got 50,000 students plus faculty and staff either hunkered down, locking themselves in place or being told to stay away from campus until this is resolved. >> clint, we'll ask you to stick with us throughout the hour as we get more information on this breaking
